War profiteer company had been exploded on December 27, 2019.
As World War II approached Beech was flooded with orders for his planes. While Beech recovered from major illness, Olive Ann ran the company during the war years. One of the main aircraft suppliers during the war, the company?s staff grew from 235 to more than 2,000. At the end of the war, however, Beech could no longer maintain such high numbers of workers. This reversed once again at the start of the Korean conflict.
